Philippine nurses are now very globally competitive. We increase the level of competency through trainings and seminars. Basing from our Philippine Nursing Act of 2002 (R.A 9173) it says that the administration of parenteral injection is in the scope of nursing practice. Thus, ANSAP strengthens and promote certification of IV therapist for several reasons which can uphold safe nursing practice.
Intravenous Therapy (IVT) training is primarily designed to ensure safe practice in intravenous therapy to uphold the quality of nursing practice. ANSAP has been the leading accredited nursing specialty organization which prepared the nursing standards on intravenous practice. According to Professional Regulation Commission – Board of Nursing (PRC-BON) Resolution No. 08, series of 1994, only those registered nurses who were adequately trained and completed the training requirements of the Intravenous Therapy Program prescribed by the Association of Nursing Service Administrators of the Philippines (ANSAP) can legally practice intravenous therapy.
Those registered nurses without such training who administered injections to the patient whether caused or not an injury or death to the patient shall be held either criminally liable under Sec.30, Act VII of the said law or administratively under Sec. 21, art II or both. In connection, it is a necessity for you to uphold nursing practice through undergoing such training.
The ANSAP Intravenous Therapy (IVT) Training Schedule for 3 days of Basic IV Therapy Training and IV Therapy Refresher Course stated below is an official event calendar for this year 2013.
